The Börner Mandoline

My latest gadget find is the Börner Mandoline by Swissmar.  German made Börner V-Slicers are world renowned for their durability, precision, quality and safety.

I have purchased many mandolines in my time, all with utter disappointment, all shoved to some distant corner in my kitchen. The fault, predominately mine.  I simply refused to pay the pretty penny that this tool tends to solicit.  Instead always opting for some cheapo $20 or less model, that couldn't slice it's way out of a paper bag.

Then, I stumbled upon the Börner!  Priced under $50 bucks, with glowing reviews, I was lured in once again by the call of paper thin slicing.  This time, I was not disappointed!  It slices, it dices, it juliennes, shreds & cubes with trivial effort - thanks to the three different blade attachments.  Any size pieces your heart desires, with the push-button, 4 blade thickness setting.  I love how easy it is to change out the blades and adjust the thickness.  I love the ease in which this baby slices - super sharp.  I love the rubber feet that prevent sliding and how all the pieces fit together for convenient, compact storage.  I love even more, the quick, easy clean-up!

I have been busily slicing fine potato slices for potato chips, sweet potato chips, lime potato chips, scalloped potatoes & larger pieces for French Fries.  But this gadget can handle a lot more than just potatoes; any veggie that needs cut down to size is no match for the Börner Mandoline!

If your knife skills aren't what you'd liked them to be, give this mandoline a chance, you won't be disappointed.

I only wish it came in fuchsia....sigh.

Check it out!
